Brazos County DA To Decide on Child Injury Case

A Brazos County injury to a child case is now in the hands of the district attorney.

For more than a month, the Brazos County Sheriff's office has been investigating suspicious injuries to College Station toddler, Alexis Verzal.

Sheriff Chris Kirk says his office turned over its investigation to the Brazos County District Attorney late last week.

The district attorney's office can either authorize an arrest warrant or take the case to the grand jury. District Attorney Bill Turner said Monday a timetable has not been set for the case.

It was April 3rd that Alexis suffered what investigators call non-accidental head trauma at the home of her day care provider. The family day care is no longer operating.

Alexis was treated for eye and brain hemorrhages, which are injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

The one-year-old is making progress at a Nebraska rehabilitation center.
